Islamic leaders call for hate crime investigation
A 42-year-old man was shot by another man in SW Houston last week and local Islamic leaders are calling for a hate crime investigation

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A man who was charged in what police had described as a road rage shooting last summer has been no-billed by a Harris County grand jury.

Ziad Abu Naim, 42, died after the shooting from June 26. Robert Craig Klimek, 43, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to court records, there was a dispute over who had the right-of-way at the intersection of Fairdale and Greenridge in southwest Houston. Naim reportedly got out of his vehicle and punched Klimek twice in the face. Klimek pulled a semi-automatic pistol from the middle console and shot Naim once in the face. Klimek then helped Naim's wife call 911 and did chest compressions on him.

Naim's family disputed that entire account.

On Wednesday morning, a Harris County grand jury no-billed Klimek in the case.
